Conditioned Taste Aversion
July 3, 2019
Since 1972 our research group has been working to develop a practical method for altering the predatory behavior of coyotes that spares both the coyote and the lamb. Our work has been guided by a working model of predatory behavior (Gustavson et al. 1979) based on the results of over 20 years of experimental investigations on taste aversion conditioning. This work has predominantly used rats as experimental subjects.
